prayer for abounding?

It has been noted that Paul’s prayers are more about spiritual development than about one’s circumstances. (If you think this assessment incorrect, read all of his letters and Acts, make a list, and get back to me.) [edited]

One of my favorite prayers to pray for people is this one (it’s written on a 3×5 card and kept with my list of people):

Ok, ok, so, you can’t read my scribble. Here you go: “And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.” (Philippians‬ ‭1:9-11‬ ‭ESV‬‬)

This is a great prayer for your loved ones and your hated ones alike.
